Frugal, inexpensive Pottery Barn Slipcovered Comfort Chair look alike from Ikea!

I think this chair is a classic for both Pottery Barn and Ikea.  A lot of folks love this chair and it’s couch version for the comfort and simplicity of it.  Plus, it’s washable.


PB Comfort Slipcovered Armchair$899 ($90 Shipping)

This chair is extra deep and has three layers of padding on the arms and back.  You can choose a down-blend fill for the chair for a comfier (and pricier) seat.


Ektorp Chair $249 (Pick Up At Store)

As expected with Ikea furniture, you’re obviously not getting the quality you would with the Pottery Barn counterpart.  However, this chair would be perfectly functional in our house and I would prefer to save a few dollars with the frugal option which is still super cute, durable and washable.
